Transstroy sums up the construction of the stadium in St. Petersburg in 2014
Transstroy company, the general contractor of football stadium in St. Petersburg, completed one of the key stages of construction - construction of the arena bowl and started other major activities: installation of a roof, roll-out field, utilities and finishing.
In 2014, the most significant quantity of work was produced during the entire construction scope of work – about 30% of all projects. We signed a contract for the completion of the stadium, building access areas and arrangement of the territory around the arena. General preparedness of the object to the end of the year is about 65%. Throughout the year, the average number of workers at the facility was 2.400.
In the past year basic concrete structures of the stadium bowl were completed. Transstroy began installation of engineering systems, the stationary roof and the roll-out field. In the active phase are works on installation of facade coatings, finishing of stands and the interior of the arena. The total amount of concrete laid is more than 98% of the total project amount, steel structures - 75%, installed about 30% of the total utilities.
Most of the stadium is covered with rough facade and stained glass windows. On a third of the object area construction and installation works are already going in heated rooms. Works on the construction of the zone for stadium and parking access control started in 2014.
We achieve high rates of construction on one of the most complex engineering structures in Europe also for a new system of project management. It was implemented since the beginning of this year. The system is based on a mathematical model: it allows not only making work schedules, taking into account technological sequences, planned material costs, the number of workers and equipment. It also allows forming predictions of work execution during project implementation and identifying critical points of technological processes.
In the following year, Transstroy will complete the works started in 2014 and begin the installation and commissioning of the equipment. In particular, at the end of the first quarter we will complete the process of the installation of the stationary part of the roof, assembled part will be raised on the pylons. After that we will be able to go to the assembly of the sliding segment. In addition, by the end of the next year basic constructions of the roll-out field and engineering systems should be installed and the rough finishing of premises and stands should be completed. Full completion of the construction of the sports arena on Krestovsky Island is scheduled for May 2016.
